Budget Tip

For our Jamaican brides, if you are seriously on a budget as this is truly a recession year, at Helen G Events we suggest scaling back on everything. You can have your ceremony done at the Registrar General’s Department for under $10000 and then you can have a small intimate dinner at a friend’s home or at a restaurant for under $30000 for a group of 25 persons.

Seriously the best wedding I have been to was one where it was only 15 of us, we did her bouquet and the grooms boutonniere and she had a one tier cake, and all of us took pictures and gave to her and she had her reception at a local restaurant. It was intimate and nice and fun.

If a year later or a few years later you see some extra cash you can always have a bigger anniversary party.

    what do I get for the $10,000 – just the venue for the ceremony and the marriage officer?
